My deepest sympathy to Jim and all of Mary's family. I met Mary playing pinochle. We always looked forward to being partners because we did good together. On Tuesday's, after playing cards in Calumet City, a few of us would go to Culver's. She will be missed. Joyce Kisel

I'm so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Mary well but the few times I was able to spend some time with her I could tell she was a very nice lady. But what I do know is that Mary, and Jim, raised three three great kids wish speaks volumes about her character.
